Molly Metz

Combining collage elements with richly painted surfaces, Molly Metz’s paintings explore the complexity of existence—from the cellular to the astronomical and the terrestrial to the aquatic, as well as the nooks and crannies in-between. The artist frequently employs humorous words and short phrases in her works, tiny texts she embeds within odd-shaped forms such as cells and squiggles. Metz’s paintings often hold secret surprises, including extemporaneous and process-oriented sketches on their reverse sides.
